Aircraft Emergencies Workshop at Cork Airport

Cork Airport’s Fire and Rescue Service is to demonstrate a life-like aircraft emergency simulation as part of the global Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Gathering 2018 next week.

Up to 40 delegates — to include members of the HSE National Ambulance Service, and other national and overseas agencies involved in emergency medicine and pre hospital emergency care — will take part in the Aircraft Emergencies Workshop at Cork Airport’s Fire Training Facility on Wednesday 12th September. A simulated aircraft incident will be staged, building on the skills of the paramedics, fire fighters, trauma doctors and other EMS personnel involved, who may be tasked to respond to aircraft emergencies in their communities or at their local airports.
